Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.
~Psalm 119:105, NLT
Whatever I do, wherever I be, Its still God’s hand that leads me.
Modern technology is something else. When we traveled in the old days, we used an Atlas or stopped and bought a road map but road maps are a thing of the past. Our phones and cars have navigational systems links to a GPS. I use my phone a lot of the time but the Colorado has a good Nav-system and I use it all the time. I was really reluctant to use Nav-systems when they first came out but I have learned that they can be helpful. One thing is sure: on a lot of trips, I need guidance. A good example happened recently: June and I left for a little get a way to Mount Airy, N.C. and I had planned to go through Ashville but our Nav-system guided us through Bristol. Coming back, I did it my way and went through Ashville. It was a mistake. The I-40 stretch over the mountains is very tense driving. Two narrow lanes inside two concrete walls and big trucks galore. Steve Hardy and I drove that just a little over a year ago but somehow I had forgotten how treacherous that stretch happens to be.
One of the positive things about growing old is the realization that you need help. Little children don’t want help; teenagers know everything and so they don’t need help. Young men are proud and will not ask for help but when you get old you don’t mind asking for help. June got me a Blackstone Grille for my birthday and it came in a box. I had to assemble it. In the old days, I would have chunked the instructions but I don’t do that anymore. Matter of fact, it is a miracle when I am able to follow the instructions. They don’t make them simple. Of course our real Nav-system in the word of God. I shutter to think where I would be without it. Well, I would be lost, wouldn’t I? I don’t think there is a day that goes by that I don’t thank God for the bible. I am reading Psalm 119 at present and I love it.
PTL we got a shower last night around 9:00. I stood on the front porch and watched. I could see the edge of the storm to the North. We were just inside the edge. We were so close that our garden got more rain than our front yard. I haven’t checked the pumpkin patch in Lawrence County yet.
Had a song I wanted to do last night a the POINT and my mind went blank so for all those at the POINT, here it is…You have to sing along with it…
By the way, more readers liked the Gaither version of O FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES than they did Crowder.
